The Mets' new home

I can't stop laughing after reading my favorite Mets blog today. Shea Stadium is gone and the Mets' new home will (still?) be called CitiField. Citi with an 'i' because it's sponsored by Citibank. You know, yeah, that Citibank.

Anyway, Steve over at The Eddie Kranepool Society has been calling the new stadium Bailout Park for a few months. But today, I see he's renamed it Paupers Field, which is an all too realistic acknowledgment of the deterioration in Citibank's position since the fall.
